Mrs. Lee’s Daffodil Garden
This is absolutely my favorite thing to do in February and March. You can picnic or just take thousands of pictures of the daffodils. It is really so cool. It usually opens Feb. 15 through March 15, but is VERY subject to the weather. Millions of golden daffodils scattered over approx. 28 acres. The garden, just outside Gladewater, is open seven days a week from 10 am to 4 pm.
For directions and predicted blooming schedule please call
